Gmarket Haul!!!!

So after work today, I rushed to the post office... When I handed the lady the yellowish slip with the tracking number, she went to go look for it. After a minute or so, I started getting scared... She couldn't find my package!!! I was crying inside! It took her some more time before she found it and she brought another package that I did not know about. My ebay purchase also arrived (I did not know it had tracking) but I'm not going to post that because I'm mad about the product... It is not like the picture...

So I went home right away and ripped open my package... I got a little bit mad again... One of the sellers I ordered from went mad with tape.... He/She taped all over some of the boxes... It took me a long time to carefully remove the tape... My mood lifted once I got to see the actual items.... :D Ready??

These are the items I chose. :D

All Etude House items starting from the top left going clockwise:
1. Color Me Nude Lip Concealer
2. Nail Polish #38
3. Peach Water Gloss in #2 Strawberry Milk
4. Cute & Sexy Eyes in #2 Peach Pink

The precious Castledew Color Shot Eyes! Isn't the package pretty? The top is mirror like.

My body looks so wierd!!

Castledew Color Shot Eyes VL330

Castledew Color Shot Eyes GD240 The one that Ha Ji Won is modeling in the ad!!

Castledew Color Shot Eyes #5

Castledew Color Shot Eyes #2

The super precious Diacut Eyes and Diacut Cheek!! I love!!


E902 Planet Shine Star


Hmm... I just realized I forgot to take off the plastic protective sheet when taking the pictures.... It's just a tad bit shiny looking.

These are the free gifts??? The green package with Yoona are sanitary napkins by YeJiMin, a Korean Brand. The Green Tea Body Nature are shower gels. These came free when I bought the 2 Diacut Eyes and the Diacut Cheeks. The free gifts towards the from and the right are from the Etude House seller after buying a certain amount... The pink and purple thing are towelettes. The green tube is a Sweet Appleade Body Wash and the light blue package is a Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Powder Wash sample.

I have not even tested any one of the Castledew palettes yet and I'm thinking "I have buy the other palettes too!!!" There is definitely something wrong with me... :D

Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal Review

I recently purchased a Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal. I used it today and let me tell you what I think about it.

I paid $3.49 at Shoprite.

It actually smells pretty good. It does not really smell like avocado... I don't know what the smell is but it's not too strong...

The package says " This rich clay mask, with added oatmeal and Vitamin E, draws out excess oils and dirt, purging clogged pores, leaving your skin clean and soft."

The package also says that it "Contains Natural Ingredients". When I read the ingredients, the first thing listed is water and then complicated names are listed. This is not a good sign. I'm not going to type all the ingredients but it does contain oat and avocado oil... and many different types of alcohol.... I never had to read the ingredient's before but I have learned my lesson this time...

I do not know why, but my skin tingled (in a bad way) while waiting for the mask to dry... I do not have sensitive skin... After washing, my skin was clean but kinda dry. My pores were less visible. My skin type is normal so I really don't know why this happened. I'm not blotchy or anything... but I still don't like unknown tingliness on my face....

Will I rebuy? Nope. I probably won't even touch this tube again...

Update on my gmarket haul: I want to say gmarket ships lightning fast! I placed the order on Aug 23. My packaged was shipped to me on Aug 26 and it arrives today but I was not home (*tears*) so I will pick it up on Monday after work. I guess the ridiculous shipping price is really worth it. :D

My planner from gmarket and my beloved DS! :D

Very important!! Keys. See the green membership card? TheFaceShop. :D HK is the key home so I don't have to look so hard when I'm tired. Haha.. Lazy me.

I like having a choice so I have fruity and minty gum. I almost always have a granola bar in my bag for the times I start shaking....

Protection for my eyes.

My Sony Ericsson cellphone. Can you guess who I love? My mother says I'm wierd because of me loving him at my age. My husband gets a bit jealous, LOL.

Stamps for my planner.

So cute!! Yes, some of the cuter stamps has Korean phrases. I can read and understand them though. The little shopping bag has a star in the middle... I tried 2x but it still does not show that well..

My Daily Beauty Routine

I got tagged by the pretty Ena to do a daily beauty routine so here goes.

First up will be the items used the most in my current (Seasonal and depends on what I like at the time) Day & Night Skincare Routine .

Starting from the Left going clockwise:

1. Dove Gentle Exfoliating Daily Facial Cleansing Pillows - gentle enough to be used everyday. The cleansing pillow has 2 sides for gentle cleansing or for exfoliation.

2. Laneige Professional Makeup Remover Multi Cleanser - Makeup removing, foam cleansing and micro scrubbing. Honestly, my skin feels really clean after using this but I feel a tad bit on the dry side and the smell is a little strong...

3. The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash - To help prevent blemishes.

4. Etude House Happy Teatime Peach Tea Cleansing Foam - I love the smell so this stays in the shower for the morning.

5. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil - I love this but I don't like using it around the eye area because it gives me fuzzy vision after washing... so I have #6.

6. Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover - Removes even waterproof mascara. Will probably try something else after finishing...

7. Dove SkinVitalizer - Use with #1 to better exfoliate with mechanical vibrations.

Number 1+7, 2, & 3 really depends on the weather and how much makeup I'm wearing for the day.

Starting from the Left going clockwise:

1. Shiseido Pureness Balancing Softener Alcohol Free - Used in conjuction with #2 & #6.

2. Shiseido Pureness Matifying Moisturizer Oil-Free - I use this as my day moisturizer.

3. Laneige Eye Designer Cream - I use this at night only because it is on the heavy side so it take longer to absorb.

4. Kevin Beautymaker Aquamarine Hydrating Eye Serum - I use this in the morning because it is light, hydrating, and absorbs relatively fast for faster makeup application. :D

5. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack Plus - My current love!! Last step of my nightly ritual to help lock in all the moisture at night to wake up with plump-hydrated skin.

6. DHC Platinum Silver Nanocolloid - I use this at night after

Now that I'm typing everything up, I'm beginning to think I'm being too complicated but I don't get huge breakouts... :D So I can't be too crazy!

My current Daily Makeup Routine:

Starting from the Left going clockwise:

1. Etude House Top 10 V-Line BB Cream with SPF 27 - I use this more often because it covers blemishes fairly well so I don't need that much concealer.

2. Laneige Snow Crystal Dual (with concealer in the top white section) Founation with SPF 22 in 23 Sand Beige

3. MAC Prep and Prime Skin Base Veil - I was told by a SA that this helps the foundation last longer... I use this when I don't use #1.

4. Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in 20 Peach Satin - I switch between this and #5.

5. TheFaceShop Illuminating Cushion Blusher 01 Pink

6. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus

I just realized that I didn't even open the blush to show the color when I posted my TFS haul a while back.

TFS Illuminating Cushion Blusher 01 Pink
A very pretty pearly/shimmery pink. Sorry I couldn't get a great picture.

Starting from the Left going clockwise:

1. Kevin Beautymaker Princess Repairing Lip Balm - I love this! Smells great! Looks Pretty!! & Feels great on the lips!!!

2. MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack - For days when I have time to apply it and when I have a clean brush.

3. MAC Prep + Prime Lash - I have Asian lashes...

4. Avon Ultra Luxury Brow Liner in Light Golden Brown

5. MAC Pearlglide Eye Liner in Black Russian - Very pretty black liner with shimmer/glitter. Waterproof.

6. Maybelline Great Lash in Very Black - I carry this with me so I won't cry if I lose it.

7. The Body Shop Divide & Multiply Mascara in 01


9. MAC Suntints Liquid Lip Balm with SPF 20 in Full of Grace

10. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Compact - I carry this around with me for blotting...

MAC Retrospeck (Lustre). My daily e/s.

Wow! That was long... I never realized that I use so much on a daily basis. Now I want to tag anyone who is reading to do this. It was fun reading Ena's and learning about new products. :D

So I went grocery shopping last night and picked up these 2 items that were not in the store before... Or maybe I was oblivious... Each were less then $4 so why not?

L- St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub for Blemish & Black Head Control - I never knew that they had this formula. The tube says New Look so it is probably not new. Anyways, I used it already. It smells so good and leaves me so clean and soft. I love it!

R- Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal - Have not tried tried this yet but is supposed to "purge pores & firm and smoothe skin". For the days when I don't have an actual avocado in my fridge.

Last thing to show..
I want everyone to meet.........................
.............last night's dinner! haha! I was a little iffy at the missing tip on the claw but I didn't want to go back to Shoprite... My husband asked me if it was still moving and I said yes. Who would buy dead lobster? It was still moving in the bag. My husband felt bad for the lobster then because I was going to butcher it ( I had to cut it up to make Cantonese Style)... I didn't take pictures of the cooking process because it was my first time cutting and cooking lobster... I was not afraid of the lobster but it was disturbing when it still moved after I separated its head from its body with the head cut in half..... End result: Yummy in the tummy!!

Harvest Moon Love

I Love Harvest Moon! It is one of my favorite games of all time next to The Sims and Final Fantasy.

This addiction first started with the Super Nintendo. Remember that system? LOL. It was the first HM that I ever played and I fell in love with it! Yes, it gets really boring sometimes because you do the same thing everyday in the game.

The games I own....

L- Rune Factory 2 This is not a HM game but it is by the same makers.
R- Friends of Mineral Town (GBA) I don't know where the box is... Might be in my room at my parent's house.

L: Save the Homeland R: A Wonderful Life was
originally for the GameCube and got remade for the PS2.

This is how my DS looks right now.

Because Amazon has a sale on this case, I bought another one for $4.44 shipped. Another reason is that the black cow spots on the back of the case is getting scratched up...

As of now, I am trying to collect HM games (one of the PS2 games are still in the plastic) that I have systems for. I am so wierd.

A few that I am missing....

I have not finished with these yet and new ones are going to be released soon! It's never ending!!

Frantic Farming is similar gameplay to Puzzle de Harvest Moon.

Sunshine Islands will be released on November 10th for the DS. There is no picture yet.

Animal Paradise will be released on October 20th for the Wii. There is no picture yet either

As an ending note, I still have my Nintendo from 1992 and it still works!!! :D
